This happens to me sometimes while working on my laptop. It seems to be
a problem if the laptop's keyboard itself in its circuitry, since the
keys aren't actually 'kept pressed' mechanically. Basically, what
happens is that my MODKEY (Mod4, left Winkey since I only have one) is
held down somehow. So if I hit <Enter>, I get an xterm, if I hit 'p', I
get the program menu, etc.

It's a bummer, really, fortunately it doesn't happen so often now that I
can *more or less* reproduce it: Hold down Win for a long period of
time (>5secs), or hold Winkey and left Alt for a while (>3secs);
something like that. To "fix" it, I have to hit Win+Alt a few times, or
perhaps Esc first. It's really *that* buggy. Not wmii's fault, though.
